  1. hi - sorry to pester and revive an old thread, but any news on including this fix in an upcoming release? (my current version is v3-build-836-arm64-play full version btw) Thanks!
  2. Panic over - just found the Visualisation on/off button
  3. Just noticed that the visual effect behind the album art (is this "eq visualisation"?) is now permanently on. It was off before. Has the pro button setting switched this on? Turning pro button off doesn't make the effect stop. Any idea what's happened here? Thanks!
  4. Thanks! Spot on. It wouldn't have occurred to me to look in Skins btw, but job done anyway. Tony
  5. On Poweramp V2 there were advance/rewind buttons where I could do a single tap for next/previous track, or hold to scan ffwd/rewind through a track. With V3 I know I can swipe left/right for previous/next trap, but is there a ffwd/rewind functionality that I'm not seeing somewhere? If it's not there can it be added? Thanks! Tony
  6. This advice has led to the most accurate scrobbling performance I've seen in ages. Thanks!
  7. Is there a .cue file in the same directory? I had the same problem. Turns out the .cue file defined the track names (albeit wrongly) but there was no band nor album definition in the .cue file. I removed the .cue and deleted the album from my phone, then copied the album over again without the .cue file. Full rescan and bingo, job done. Just in case it's useful, I replied with the same method to this problem as well:
  8. I recently found an album which had a cue file with no Artist, Album, or AlbumArtist info. Despite the mp3 files for this album being fully and correctly tagged with no unusual characters, the album was listed in Poweramp (816) as Unknown Artist/Unknown Album. Deleting the cue file and full rescan fixed the problem. I've no idea if this is relevant here though
  9. Hi, a feature I'd welcome is in the playback view , as well as "track time elapsed" and "total track time", an extra time display that shows the total length of the current list (whether it's an album, or a queue) and time left until the current list is complete. Thanks for the consideration.
  10. Ok, thanks for the update. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
  11. Hi, just curious if you expected this to be fixed in build 814? I updated over the weekend and still have the same behaviour, unless I've missed an option or setting somewhere - please advise if so. Thanks!
  12. I've been experiencing this recently, but with the previous version of Poweramp as well. Most of the time I'll see the last.fm symbol appear briefly in my status bar then disappear, sometimes (rarely) it will persist for the song's duration and I'll get a successful scrobble. I suspect the problem is something to do with the Last.fm app, as I've seen the same problem scrobbling from Spotify playback as well. Spotify will also scrobble on its own, so I should see double scrobbles - I only get one per track though, and zero when I turn off Spotify's scrobbling feature. I get pretty much 100% scrobble coverage from the Simple Last.fm Scrobbler app though - have you tried that one?
  13. Excellent, thanks for the quick reply and confirmation. Tony
  14. Hi all, Big thumbs up in general for the new-look Poweramp. I'm running v3-build-812-play, full version. Something I can't work out though - previously, while listening to an album, I was able to add songs to the Queue and these queued songs would start playing in queued order when the album had finished. By doing this I could do things like listen to my favourite songs from the same album once the album had finished; add a new album to start immediately at the end of the current album; add songs from a different album (or albums) again to start at the end of the current album. In my v3 build I can't find the options to do this. I can either queue songs that start playing immediately, or I can queue songs that play start playing after the current song. How do I configure my options to play the queue after the current album has finished? Thanks! Tony
  15. Hi - after a month or so of stable scrobbling I've started having problems with the Last.fm official scrobbler, so I've re-enabled SLS as well. Anyone else having issues in the last couple of weeks?
  16. Results ok so far with the Official Last.fm Scrobbler. I've just discovered this, for those of you who discover missing scrobbles... http://universalscrobbler.com
  17. After a week or so observation, I can confirm I'm curently getting 99.99% accurate scrobbling via the Official Last.fm app, and about 90% accurate SLS scrobbling, using the settings I described above. I'll turn off SLS soon, and stick with the official app.
  18. Another curious observation. I've created a new directory on my SD card, called mp3s. I've copied all my albums in there, and got on with the day's listening. When I delete an album via Poweramp, it goes from the album list. Also, examining the mp3s directory from File Commander also shows that they're deleted - although non-music files are still present, eg jpgs, cue files etc. Then when I hook up the phone to my PC and navigate to the same directory, all the music files are still there! How odd.
  19. It's not really a problem, as I know I've got one reliable source of scrobbling, which surprisingly turns out to be via the Last.fm app. The scrobbling settings in Poweramp are as follows: Scrobble via Official Last.fm app: unticked (was ticked until yesterday) Scrobble via Simple Last.fm app: ticked Scrobble via Scrobble Droid: unticked Last.fm app settings: Spotify unselected Rdio unselected Other music apps selected Wifi scrobble only unselected Scrobble point 50% (a bit pessimistic, I'll probably raise this as confidence with Last.fm app scrobbling improves) SLS settings: Scrobble ticked Notify now playing ticked When to scrobble When you press the scrobble now button Also on playlist finish ticked Network Submit data on any network Roaming unticked (duplicated for on battery/unplugged) Enabled apps in SLS: Only Poweramp (Others available: Anroid Music Player, Spotify, Sony Ericsson Music Player)
  20. Thanks for the replies Theo and Andre. I've not tried any of the new alpha releases, Andre - I'm not sure how to do this when it's not coming via the Google Pay Store, so could you give me a few tips? Is it as easy as navigating to the appropriate page on the Poweramp site and clicking on the .apk file? Is it easy to roll back to the Google Play version?
  21. Thanks for the reply DarXide. I wondered as I read your post how, given my scrobbling setup, the official Last.fm app would "get in the way" of the Simple Last.fm's scrobbles, seeing as I Have SLS set up to not send scrobbles until I hit the "scrobble now" button. In other words, Poweramp should just let SLS know to add a song to the scrobble cache, and no network traffic happens until I intervene. Also it seemed that the Official Last.fm app wasn't working as I was getting maybe 5-10% of its scrobbles through (which is why I installed SLS to save the day, despite losing the occasional scrobble). Anyway I took your advice regarding the Official Last.fm app. I didn't uninstall it, as I use it to check stats etc now and again. All I did was uncheck "Scrobble via Official Last.fm app" in the Poweramp settings. All of a sudden 100% of Official Last.fm scrobbles are appearing! how odd. (I assume this is because I have "Other music apps" selected in the "Scrobble from" section of the Official Last .fm app settings. So now I'm getting almost double scrobbles (I say almost as it's 100% via Official Last.fm app and maybe 90-95% from SLS), I can easily delete the doubles. I'll keep my eye on it for a few days and update with any findings or suspicions.
  22. A bit more info: the Sony Z5 Compact comes with File Commander, a separate explorer-style app. I can easily navigate to and successfully delete folders using this app. Obviously I'd prefer to do it from Poweramp though!
  23. Ok, I deleted all my music from the system folder mentioned above, and copied in a couple of dozen albums from my PC to <sd card>/Music (at least navigating there is a lot easier!) I went to delete an album, and was immediately met with the "Grant Access" dialog. First time! So I followed the guidelines at http:// forum.powerampapp.com/ index.php?/ topic/7451-grant-access/ and successfully selected my SD card. (That screen shot from maxmp is very valuable, I wouldn't have been able to work it out otherwise!). I can now view and play mp3s from the new location as expected. I've tried deleting albums from both the "Folders" and the "Library" view. The album is removed from each view as expected. However, when I connect the phone to my PC again and navigate to <sd card>/Music, I can still see the deleted folders and all of their content. Any further ideas for a fix? thanks!
  24. Well that's a good question actually. I've recently changed my phone from a Samsung S4 Mini to the Sony. As the Samsung was on a lower version of Android (4.4.2 I think), the only place I could delete mp3 files from was the folder deep in Android/data/com.maxmpz...etc. Even then, while mp3s were deleted, the folders and any other files that happened to be hanging around (.m3u, album cover jpgs, .cue files etc) were left in place. Regardless, the album's "modified" timestamp would be updated, making identification of the deleted albums obvious. I'll try in a more user-friendly directory and update the thread with my findings. Thanks for the suggestion!
